Deosai National Park, Skardu

4.8
#1 of 10 in Things to do in Skardu
Explore the untouched nature with a hike through Deosai National Park--at 4,114 m (13,497 ft) above sea level, the world's second-highest plain. The snow cover that lasts much of the year makes access rather difficult, but in spring and summer it comes alive with an endless sea of alpine flowers. The area is known for its wide variety of both plant and animal species, from colorful butterflies to marmots and wild horses. Make sure to bring lots of water and take your trek slowly, since the high altitude makes breathing a bit harder. Put Deosai National Park and other Skardu attractions into our Skardu travel route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • If you are in area between June end to August beginning, do visit and if you are adventurous enough try Glamping , you will come back with a different mindset, we did a day trip in mid June with 3 kid...  more »
  • In summer only because access is impossible about 8 months a year. High plain at more than 4,000 m altitude, with vegetation reminiscent of that of the tundra. In July there may still be muddy trails but the meadows are full of flowers, in places like carpets very colorful as far as the eye can see. It is a national park, so it is important to respect the rules; there is a point between Satpara and Astore to make lunch stops.
